Marikina’s Passenger Seat sells ice cream sandwiches


Besides sightseeing around the Marina Bay Sands or Esplanade, if there’s one thing we miss about visiting the Lion City, it’s stopping by a street vendor along Orchard Road selling an ice cream sandwich, a brick of ice cream wrapped with bread or wafers.

But something close to the real thing is actually available right on our shores – Passenger Seat, an airplane-themed restaurant in Marikina, is serving the dessert in 7 Filipino flavors!


The flavors include ube, yema & cheese, and Choc Nut

At P75 (~USD1.50) each, the ice cream sandwiches in rectangular shapes are covered with wafers, exactly like the ice cream sandwiches you can eat in Singapore!

But the twist comes in the flavors of the sandwiches, as they include ube, yema & cheese, and Choc Nut – flavors that are unique and familiar to Filipinos.

Aside from the ice cream desserts, if you’re feeling famished, you can also check out their boodle fight meals with your friends or family. The Boodle Flight (starts at P280 solo, ~USD5.58; starts at P585 group, ~USD11.65) meals come with all things Filipino from tilapia to chicken inasal to daing na bangus.

For foodie travellers excited to fly around the world soon, the Passenger Seat is indeed a must-visit!

While we cannot easily fly to the Lion City for now, Passenger Seat’s ice cream sandwiches offer an exciting version of the dessert we Filipinos have come to love whenever we’re in Singapore.

The restaurant’s airplane-themed interiors and other servings such as the boodle fight meals also provide a refreshing experience for foodies on the go.
